Welcome to The Woodlands

From a quiet afternoon of kayaking to a fist-pumping night of live music, a hike through the woods to strolling The Waterway promenade, or a round of golf to a roundtable discussion — these are just a few of the ways you can spend a day in The Woodlands. A destination whose offerings and culture rival the nation’s most buzzed about larger cities, The Woodlands is a place designed for great experiences - from beautiful nature to top-tier amenities, globally-ranked venues to hidden gems. Aptly named The Woodlands for its development in and around 28,000 tree-filled acres, this master planned destination was founded in 1974 and is located 28 miles north of downtown Houston. 



When you come to The Woodlands, come hungry because we have over 150 restaurants to choose from! Reserve a table with a waterfront view, dine al fresco, and more.
